That depends on what a reasonable limit for the size of a checkin is, of
course. And that limit most likely depends on your environment.

I think we can solve some of the problem by being more careful about the
size of the transactions we create; ideally, the numer of locks used
should be constant regardless of the size of the commit. In the
meantime, it would be great if somebody could take the time and actually
document what the lock limits should be depending on commit size, so
that people could set their DB_CONFIG settings to suit their expected usage

That error messag comes from BDB, not from Subversion. I don't think
there's any way we can safely convert it.
